Because the drab Under the Lash failed at the box office, Paramount was more than happy to put their star, Gloria Swanson, into a more glamorous role here. She plays the stunning Lois Miller, who weds wheeler-dealer James Berkeley (Stuart Holmes). But Lois is nothing more than a trophy wife who he uses to attract potential marks. Lois is unaware of this until her former suitor, Allan Franklin (Richard Wayne) comes back into her life. Berkeley convinces Franklin to let him handle his financial affairs in Mexico, and all three of them head south of the border. It's then that Lois finally realizes she's been used. She halts the shady business deal and denounces her slimy husband. Just then a Mexican bandit (Clarence Burton) and his gang attack them and in the melee, Berkeley is killed. Lois and Franklin escape on horseback, leaping from a precipice to get away. The two of them finally make it to safety and, it is assumed, headed for the altar.
